Nearly there!!!! Don't despair!!!! At least your nearing the end of the process. Our date is July 2007, so it'll be at least another 2.5 years wait for us if not longer. Good luck and hopefully your wait will nearly be over

January Visa Bulletin has moved EB-3 general eligibility to March 22, 2005 ... better ensure your case is ready to be approved in case things retrogress again.
